We have had a fantastic first day on our residential. We spent time in Fleetwood eating a lovely picnic lunch in the sunshine. We visited the Cadbury's shop and treated ourselves to something chocolatey for after our tea. We then went shopping to get all our ingredients for our meals during the week. On arriving at the cottage we unpacked our cases, joined the ducks and chicken our in the sunshine before going for a dip in the hot tub. We had a delicious curry for tea followed by a yoghurt and then everyone was ready for bed.

The boys slept well last night going to bed at 8.00pm and waking up at 6.45am so that they were ready for another fun packed day. After breakfast we headed off to Blackpool where we visited the Sea Life Centre. We ate our packed lunch on the beach and the sunshine came out. We took a stroll along Blackpool front before returning back to the cottage. We visited the chicken, ducks and sat and enjoyed a drink and an ice cream by the fishing lake. We made some chocolate cupcakes ready for tomorrow when our friends join us. For tea we had pasta and meatballs with garlic bread. Everyone was soon ready for bed after chilling for a while.

Today we were very excited for our friends to arrive. We finished our buns by icing and decorating them, made up our special lunchtime meal to share with our friends. We relaxed and chatted with our friends for a while before it was time for them to head off back to school. We then went for a wet visit to Standley Park and had a drink and lovely walk around the lake before returning to the Cottage. We built a den and played for a while making shadow puppets, before we had rice and chicken for tea. Before we knew it, it was time for showers and bedtime. I wonder what exciting things we will do tomorrow and the sunshine is suppose to return.

We had an early start to the day today. We went to St. Anne's and had a beautiful walk along the beach front it was lovely and sunny but a little windy. We then made our way to Blackpool and walked along the front getting lots of fresh sea air. We returned to the cottage and enjoyed sitting out with a drink and playing with some toys before going into the hot tub. We had fish fingers or homemade cheese and onion pie, chips and beans for tea. We had two boys falling fast asleep and then in bed for 7.30pm.

Well the boys had a fantastic sleep from 7.30pm to 6.30am, so they must have been tired. We got up had some breakfast before getting ready for the day. We had to pack up our things before setting off to Townley Hall, where we enjoyed the park and a lovely walk around the grounds and visited Towneley Garden Centre before heading back to school in time for them to see their friends and share their holiday tales before transport time to take them home.
Everyone over the last week has been very well behaved and worked on their independent skills whilst having an amazing time with lots of laughs and giggles along the way.
